This report explores the opportunities open to employees in workplaces across Europe to participate in decision-making, either in the context of their job or in relation to wider organisational issues affecting their work. Employee involvement is a key component of work organisation, relating to other dimensions such as physical working conditions and work intensity. Two dimensions of employee involvement are covered: task discretion – or the influence that employees can exercise over their immediate work tasks – and organisational participation – or the influence that employees have over work organisation. While in the EU27 as a whole there are limited opportunities for employees to participate in decision-making, the findings point to the clear benefits for employees in working in organisations that give greater scope for their involvement. Crucially, employee involvement has been shown to have a positive effect on employee motivation and psychological wellbeing, critical elements in fostering enhanced work performance and company productivity.

    Organizzazione del lavoro e partecipazione dei dipendenti in Europa

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    La presente relazione esplora quali opportunità hanno i dipendenti nei vari luoghi di lavoro europei di partecipare al processo decisionale, sia nel contesto delle loro mansioni lavorative sia in relazione alle più ampie questioni organizzative in grado di incidere sul loro lavoro. La partecipazione dei dipendenti è una componente essenziale dell’organizzazione del lavoro e la relazione ne illustra due dimensioni: la facoltà discrezionale in merito al proprio compito lavorativo, ossia l’influenza che i lavoratori possono esercitare nell’immediato sulle proprie mansioni, e la partecipazione a livello di organizzazione, ossia l’influenza che i dipendenti esercitano sull’organizzazione del lavoro. Sebbene nell’UE a 27 le opportunità per i dipendenti di partecipare al processo decisionale siano piuttosto limitate, i risultati indicano con chiarezza i benefici derivanti da tale partecipazione , particolarmente in termini di motivazione e benessere psicologico dei dipendenti, elementi critici per promuovere il miglioramento delle prestazioni lavorative e della produttività aziendale.
